Your monthly Flagyl cost savings if eligible

The Flagyl patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Flagyl, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Flagyl patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Flagyl assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Flagyl patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Flagyl patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Flagyl.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Flagyl assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Flagyl patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Flagyl.

Is NiceRx a Flagyl coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Flagyl patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Flagyl samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Flagyl coupons, discount cards, or Flagyl copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Flagyl cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Flagyl medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Flagyl cost without insurance?

Flagyl prices without insurance will vary depending on YYYY. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Flagyl 375 oral capsule 375 mg typically costs $330 for 50 capsules.

How much does Flagyl cost with insurance?

The copay for Flagyl will vary by the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out what you might need to pay for Flagyl with insurance, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to help you calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

What is Flagyl?

Flagyl is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. It is an antibiotic used for the treatment of bacterial infections of the vagina (bacterial vaginosis), as well as other parts of the body, including the stomach, liver, skin, brain and spinal cord, lungs, or bloodstream.

Flagyl is also used to treat trichomoniasis, a sexually transmitted disease caused by a parasitic infection. Both sexual partners are normally treated at the same time, even if symptoms are not present. Flagyl is not recommended for the treatment of viral infections or for vaginal infections in girls who have not begun menstrual periods.

What doses of Flagyl are available?

Flagyl is available as a 250 mg tablet, 375 mg capsule, 750 mg film coated extended-release tablet, and as a 500 mg in 100 mL solution for injection.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Flagyl active ingredients

Flagyl contains metronidazole as the active ingredient. It is a nitroimidazole antibiotic that affects the DNA of bacteria or parasites causing the infection.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
